Regional Convenings


The Teen Convening is a national program founded and managed by the ICA/Boston, but brought to life by a network of partner organizations across the country. In the spirit of the Teen Convening’s goal to empower teens to lead vital conversations on a national level about young people in the arts, the Teen Convening/Regional program supports arts organizations to produce geographically relevant and impactful Teen Convening–style events at the local level. Teen Convening/Regionals are affiliated with the ICA/Boston but planned and coordinated independently.

Each year, every partner organization that participates in the summer Teen Convening at the ICA hosts a Regional Teen Convening in their own geographic region.
